"Biographical Sketches of the Graduates of Yale College with annals of the….. By Franklin Bowditch Dexter"
After the adoption of the new Constitution of Connecticut in 1818, - a partisan revolution, which caused his removal from the Judgeship -the Legislature selected Judge Swift, with two associates, to revise the Statutes and to cause them to conform to the new order. To Judge Swift was assigned the most laborious part of this work and its exposition to the Legislature. These duties he performed to great public satisfaction. He also served the town of Windham again as Representative - in 1820, 1821 and 1822.

During the last five years of his life his active mind was employed compiling a Digest of the Common and Statute of Law of the State, which was nearly through the press at the time of his death.

In August 1823, he went to Ohio to visit his children who were settled there. While at the house of his son (Yale 1816) in Warren, Trumbull County, he was seized with an inflammatory fever, which terminated his life on September 27 in his 65th year.

He first married Jerusha, daughter of John Watrous, of Colchester, Connecticut, who died May 21, 1792 aged 29 years.

He was next married by the Rev Elijah Waterman, on March 14, 1795. to Lucretia, youngest daughter of Captain Nathaniel Webb (Yale 1757), of Windham. After her husband's death, she made her home with a daughter in Akron, Ohio where she died on January 16, 1843, aged 68 years.
